New American Standard Bible
13 (A)For the land of my people in which thorns and briars will come up;
Indeed, for all the joyful houses and for the (B)jubilant city.
14 For (C)the palace has been neglected, the [a]populated (D)city abandoned.
[b]Hill and watch-tower have become (E)caves forever,
A delight for (F)wild donkeys, a pasture for flocks,
New International Version
13 and for the land of my people,
a land overgrown with thorns and briers(A)—
yes, mourn(B) for all houses of merriment
and for this city of revelry.(C)
14 The fortress(D) will be abandoned,
the noisy city deserted;(E)
citadel and watchtower(F) will become a wasteland forever,
the delight of donkeys,(G) a pasture for flocks,(H)
